16.00: Meet at Kimmeridge Bay. There is so much to shoot here, beyond the main central ledge which most are familiar with. When we arrive, it will be a mid-tide, which is ideal for shooting the main central ledge.
With the tide rising, we will move to the western side of the bay, where a higher tide works well and there is some fascinating geology and more rocky ledges. We will work on balancing compositions, using foreground interest and background focal points.
From a technical point of view,we will concentrate on depth of field and using ND filters for long exposures.
See page 70.
In order to get to Kimmeridge Bay we had to go around the large Army Ranges at Lulworth. We waited at the entrance as we were early before driving down to the Bay to the large car park there. This is the view from the car park.
We walked around the bay and set up to take our images.
We followed Mark back to Durdle Door. At this time the roads through the Army ranges were open.
